The 7th CD Fair Maps planning meeting is scheduled for 11:00 am on Saturday, January 11 at the Rusk County Community Library (418 Corbett Ave W, Ladysmith, WI  54848). Lunch will be provided. I hope all of you are able to attend. 

In addition, please invite others who are interested in ending gerrymandering in Wisconsin who are not included here. It would be great to have 20+ activists attending.

Below is the proposed agenda.

11:00 to 1:15 - Introductions of those present (Ice breaker)
11:15 to 11:30 - Introduction to the Consensus Decision Making Process (a quick, fun exercise)
11:30 to 12:00 - Purpose of the “Organizational Meeting on Fair Maps” (Story), and why is this important (Interests)?
12:00 to 12:20 - What activities will take place during the “Organizational Meeting on Fair Maps” based on the list of interests shared by the organizing meeting leaders (Options)?
12:20 to 1:00 - Who will be responsible for carrying out the decisions on activities (Implementation)?  
1:00 to 1:10 - (Closure)  
Please review the description of 'Interest Based Consensus Decision Process' - attached.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns or would like to add anything.
